Beginning her artistic career at age 42 after working much of her life as a flight instructor, stunt pilot and crop duster, Anne Noggle began to explore an area of photographic portraiture not popular in the mainstream. Noggle's intimate and revealing works, including her notable self-portraits, are candid examinations of women and aging. Noggle received her BFA in art history and her MA degree in art in 1969 from the University of New Mexico, Santa Fe. She served as the curator of photography at the Fine Arts Museum in Santa Fe from 1970-76.
